Welcome to Lion’s Roar Dharma Center

In the Tradition of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Lion’s Roar programs are designed to provide personally tailored teachings for the Western student within an international community. Buddhist teachings at Lion’s Roar are especially designed for people with daily work, school and family commitments. Whether you are interested in simple calm-abiding meditation or more advanced Buddhist teachings there is a class just for you. It’s okay to just drop in. No need to be a member or a Buddhist to participate. Come as you are and show up!

Kalachakra – A Vision for World Peace

Kalachakra (The Wheel of Time) is a Vajrayana practice dear to the heart of HH the Dalai Lama and our Heart Lineage Teacher Jhado Rinpoche. It and the Journey to Shambhala, at the center of the practice, are guiding principles at Lion’s Roar. Shambhala is both a place and a vision for an enlightened society without war, hunger, sickness and ignorance. We believe that attaining this vision is completely possible.
